Sony Goes Behind the Scenes with SingStar Dance for PS3

50°
224w ago - Sony Computer Entertainment Europe Limited Content Producer Katy Macdonald has gone behind the scenes today with SingStar Dance for PS3.

To quote: In a studio in South London, professional dancers, choreographers, principal designers, members of the SingStar team and myself gathered for something pretty special.

This was the shoot for the upcoming SingStar Dance game, due for release later this year. The team were recording footage of the dancers that will be presented in-game for users to follow when playing.

Fully rehearsed and in costume, the dancers were ready to begin.

For me, watching anyone perform a well thought out dance routine is pretty impressive, and two people simultaneously performing a very long and difficult routine in perfect time is something that takes a lot of effort, practice and skill.

I spoke to choreographer Shaun Niles about how he creates a dance routine for SingStar Dance.

"It's very hard! I have to pretend to hold the PlayStation Move motion controller myself when I work out routines to see what can be done with it. Some movements can be quite difficult, such as a flick of the wrist, and can feel a bit weird with the controller in your hand at first. Its hard work but I have choreographed a few routines for...

Sony on Virtua Tennis 4 & PlayStation Move, Hits PS3 Spring 2011

250°
225w ago - SCEE Blog Manager James Gallagher has shared details on Virtua Tennis 4 and PlayStation Move today, and confirmed it will be hitting the PS3 entertainment system in Spring 2011.

To quote: I recently spoke to the game's Executive Producer, Mie Kumagai, and asked why she had chosen to develop a tennis game when she served us the first in the Virtua Tennis series, back in 1999.

"When we first started the series, we wanted to make a casual arcade game that everyone could pick up and enjoy," she said.

"Sport seemed like a good place to start because it appeals to many people that wouldn't usually play games. That was the start of the series, but we reached a point where we were looking for something new; it's around this time that we heard about PlayStation Move."

Virtua Tennis 4 lets you step into the shoes of some of the world's best tennis pros. Every swing of the racquet can be performed with the PlayStation Move motion controller and you can judge the approach of the ball better than ever, thanks to stereoscopic 3D support. I asked Kumagai for her thoughts on Move and her philosophy behind working with a motion controller.

"I saw PlayStation Move at quite an early stage in its development," she replied, "and I remember being curious...

Below is an image from the PS JailBreak discussion via ConsoleWinkel.nl and OzMods full statement, to quote:

"28/08/2010 - Hello Everyone. On Friday the 27/08/2010 we where given some documents from the Lawyers representing Sony. The documents are Federal Court orders for a temporary injunction.

The Injunction states that from 24 hours of receiving the documents to the 31st of August OzModChips, Quantronics, Modsupplier and anyone else in Australia:

•Give up all stock in our possession, including our sample

I guess it was lucky that the device was delayed by a couple of days. While many people that have received their sample and sent it off to cloners....we sent ours to a well known homebrew developer.

The developer we picked showed us various homebrew applications that he had already developed for ps3 dev units, that he wants to port over to retail units. Yes, PS3 homebrew...
